Hey Moms! My name is Lisa Pierce, Owner and Head Instructor at Tulsa Prenatal Yoga.
Are you wondering just what exactly a prenatal yoga workshop is and why you'd be interested? Please, keep reading! I hope to answer some of your questions here. If I don't, shoot me an email. I'm happy to help.
As you probably know, I teach weekly prenatal yoga classes, and have for over five years. I've gotten great feedback from my "moms" over the years, but one thing I consistently hear is that you all want more! You (rightfully) understand that 60 minutes of yoga 2-3 times per week isn't really enough to experience all the benefits prenatal yoga has to offer. You get that daily practice is key. You also know that knowledge is power, so you have questions - am I doing this posture correctly? Can yoga help me with XYZ?
Unfortunately, the traditional class format doesn't allow for that kind of personal exchange. There is only so much we can address in the few minutes before, during, or after class. Additionally, I've heard from many of you who simply cannot make it to class regularly because you live outside of town or your schedule prohibits it. What are your options??
I believe this workshop style class is the answer we've been waiting for.
Here is what you can specifically expect to learn at the workshop:
A quick, foolproof yoga routine to do in the comfort of your home. Just five to ten minutes of yoga per day can make a huge difference. Anyone can do this routine!
The in and outs of common pregnancy ailments and how yoga can help. You'll learn what to do and what NOT to do to help those discomforts.
How to incorporate yoga into your daily life. At your desk at work, cooking dinner, or even watching TV, you can--and should--sneak some some yoga in!
Specific postures to utilize during labor to help ease discomfort and increase the efficiency of your contractions. This is especially important if you’re planning to labor naturally, but you will benefit from this knowledge regardless of your birth plan.
An overview of how to rebuild your core strength after birth. Most exercise programs do not address the unique needs of new moms. Issues such as diastasis recti are rarely addressed, or even understood, by fitness professionals. You'll learn how to safely and effectively approach exercise post baby.
